Nov 14, 2011 · Temporal Arteritis in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

Any info on treatment for temporal arteritis after 2 years onset. Mother dx in Jan’09 and still with severe symptoms with tapering of prednisone. Now at 20 mg, but with headaches, stomach problems-nausea, weakness, and generally not feeling well. Any info would be helpful? Has anyone been cured and completely off prednisone and how long did it take. My mother is 89 and is becoming very frail, shakey, and weak.

Hi I’m new to this site and needed some info concerning my mother who was dx with temporal arteritis in Jan 09. Over this time she has been up and down mostly down. The concern is prednisone . As we taper, the symptoms increase-severe headaches , stomach problems, general malaise and not feeling well. After 2 years, her symtoms are still severe with lower doses of prednisone. How long have you had symptoms and what is the lowest dosage of prednisone that people usually getdown to. She is at 20mg now but did get down to 15mg for about a week. Does anyone get cured of this disease/ @masonc
